Philanthropy Phriday

jacquie Jacquie, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Hey everyone! Looking back on my semester, one of my favorite parts was my participation in philanthropies on Fridays. I played beach volleyball, was pied with whip cream, and even distributed books to children. These all supported great causes and were lots of fun! I wanted to share some of those experiences with you.

My Advice to Freshmen: Just Keep Swimming

sarah bass Sarah, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Entering college, I was told time and time again my first year would fly by. I thought they were all exaggerating. Well, they weren’t. And the scary thing is that sophomore year flies by even faster. I still can’t believe that I am almost halfway done with my time as an undergrad at USC.  During that first year, days blurred …

jacquie Jacquie, Why USC Leave a Comment

Hey! It is about that time again when all the high school seniors need to decide which college to attend in the fall. It doesn’t feel too long ago that I was making the same decision.

Being a Female in Viterbi

lauren h. Lauren H., Women In Engineering Leave a Comment

Whenever I mention to people that I am studying engineering, they always seem to comment on the fact that I am a female studying engineering, a traditionally male-dominated field.  Surprisingly, this is something I rarely notice in my day-to-day life.

Being a Viterbi Woman Engineer

When I began attending classes in Viterbi, however, I realized that I was concerned for no reason! I thought I would tell you a little about what it is like …

Being a Woman in Engineering

natalie Women In Engineering 1 Comment

With graduation rapidly approaching I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on my experience at USC, particularly as a woman in engineering. To be honest, I haven’t noticed a difference in my experience compared to my guy friends in engineering or USC in general. While my classes aren’t 50% girls, the ratio is high enough that I don’t even notice …

You’d think that as the semester begins to wind down, life would become a little less hectic. For me, however, that hasn’t been the case lately. This past week was a whirlwind of events, homework, and midterms leading up to Thanksgiving break next week.
